My ten-year-old son had parked himself in front of the TV and was playing Minecraft on Xbox. I watched for a few minutes as he crafted his world. Then I left the room to do other things. When I came back, I found him lying down, with his head propped up by a sofa pillow, staring at the screen. He was doing absolutely nothing.
"Dude," I said. "What's up?"
"I'm just admiring the beautiful purple clouds," he said, not taking his eyes off the screen.
I glanced over at his Minecraft world. And yes, there were purple Minecraft clouds floating in the sky in that Minecraft world. "Seriously?" I asked. "You're staring at Minecraft clouds?"
He nodded. "Yes, Mama. It's fun to stare at clouds no matter where they are!"
